Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea believes that their defeat to Everton was a disgrace with the team reaching a new low. Anthony Gordon scored a deflected goal for their third defeat in five matches. The run ensured that their top-four hopes were all but over with Tottenham extending their lead over them.
“It’s a disgrace from us, to be honest, we should win the game. We don’t create, that’s the problem. We don’t even create proper chances to score. I don’t know what to say, to be honest. We’re not good enough, that’s for sure. It’s going to be very difficult now to be in the top four,” Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea said. “We knew before they were struggling, but how difficult it is to play here even when they are not in a good mood, but they play with more desire. They played on Wednesday, they were tired, they were a bit nervous, you could feel it, and even with that, we lose the game. Of course, it’s not the perfect atmosphere. But you could see they were tired, they were nervous, and come on, they keep going and keep fighting to win. They had more desire than us. That is not acceptable, and it’s very sad to lose today.”
“If you don’t score a single goal in 95 minutes we have to be disappointed. We had a good start and should have created more chances out of that domination. Then we concede a deflected shot and lost a bit of our composure,” Ralf Rangnick said. “The second half we were trying to add creativity with substitutions but we didn’t always make the right decision. We had to do something. We needed a goal and we decided to bring Mata and more verticality with Elanga. They were defending with their players in the last 35 minutes.”
